Amanda and Vinny Engagement Session Long Beach Island Holgate NJ

Engagement Session Long Beach Island Holgate NJ

Amanda and Vinny’s Engagement Session Long Beach Island Holgate NJ was so much fun and an adventure. We had a storm chasing us the entire night, and boy was it windy.

We were worried we would get rained on, but luckily it held up, and we were able to get all of their fabulous images done before the storm hit. Our trip home was a different story. It was raining sideways and extremely windy.

I met Amanda and Vinny about a year ago when they reached out to me as a reference from a good friend of mine to shoot their wedding. Engagement Session Long Beach Island Holgate NJ

Initially, Amanda and Vinny didn’t want to do an engagement session. When COVID hit, and they decided to move their wedding to May 2021, I offered to do an Engagement Session/Save our New Date session!

They were so excited to have something to look forward to since their wedding was pushed back. Our original plan was to go to a location closer to where we both live, but since the place requires a permit fee of $200, we decided to move it to Holgate Long Beach Island NJ. LBI is a better and more secluded place to shoot anyways, so moving the session to the beach in Holgate worked in our favor! Engagement Session Long Beach Island Holgate NJ

HOW THEY MET!

Amanda and Vinny met when they were in 5th grade but lost touch until 2012 when their friends helped them reconnect. It wasn’t until four years later that Amanda finally gave Vinny a shot. Amanda losing her Mom and Vinny losing his Dad helped them reconnect. “We both had similar pain, and it turned into something special.”

Sometimes connecting over something so tragic can make getting through that moment a lot easier, and I am glad that Amanda and Vinny found each other during that time. Engagement Session Long Beach Island Holgate NJ
